Trust me, call your hotel and have them send a car to MAA to pick you up. If this is your first trip to MAA or India in general, the midnight scene outside the airport will be intimidating and a...

This. Cost me time and increase my hassle? No thanks. I know what bags fit in what aircraft and have for years.

The harder UA works to enhance their revenues, the less I spend on UA. There's...

Does this include delaying the express flights so that the mainline frames can get in/out on time? This is a disingenuous claim, unless you don't consider flying United Express flying United.

How about the Mileage Plus Select card?

Also, to best assist the international traveler, why not offer chip and PIN?

On further review, if you log in after clicking through, it shows the advertised price.

Has anyone see the bonus miles post yet?

After taxes are paid on the round trip, not sure how much revenue yield if any is remaining on a $400 fare. Probably not enough to make it worthwhile.

I can't imagine UA improved much in July as I went 4/4 on delays (:30, :60, :150, :180).

My 4 NZ segments were all on time, too bad 2 of them were necessarily attached to delayed UA segments.

I transited SYD on NZ last week and received fast track cards on the inbound in premium Y and on the outbound in regular Y as a *G. I would hope UA is competitive here for J cabin pax.
